Come together with our NYTB community for an intimate evening of dance with live music accompaniment.

The program includes selections from our current repertory by Richard Alston, Steven Melendez, and Pam Tanowitz, and get a sneak peek of a brand new work by Martin Lawrance.
Dance on a Shoestring is an intimate evening of dance held in the company's home, The Dance Gallery. The community series showcases ballets from New York Theatre Ballet's current season, works in progress by contemporary and emerging choreographers, and children of Ballet School NY.
"…an invaluable company…"
"The generous breadth of taste shown by New York Theatre Ballet and its [Legends & Visionaries] series is good for New York's whole dance scene." - The New York Times
ABOUT NEW YORK THEATRE BALLET
Now in its 38th Season, and invigorated by a recent move to St. Marks' Church in-the-Bowery, NYTB has reinvented itself as New York's downtown ballet company. With its ever-expanding repertory, NYTB's cutting edge programming brings fresh insight to classic revivals paired with the modern sensibilities of both established and up and coming choreographers. The diversity in repertory explores the past while boldly taking risks on the future. Performing in more intimate spaces, often to live music, brings the audience and the dance together for a personal experience. When reflecting on NYTB's first season at St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery in 2015, The New York Times said, "The members of Theater Ballet are not only refined dancers but also unaffected actors… they draw you in. The intimacy of the space only helped; the amplitude and honesty of their dancing has found its match in St. Mark's Church."
